Personal opinions today:
 
The representative of the leader of the Irish National Party of the British Parliament said that they will agree on the coming next British Brexit draft, means that the Brexit support rate is rising. It is expected to pass the draft of Brexit before the deadline, and the UK has an agreement to leave the EU. In addition, the German Chancellor and the European Parliament continue to say that the Brexit time can be extended. In conclusion, the risk of hard Brexit in the UK has been reduced, further boosting the pound. This morning, the pound has reported 1.3128.
 
The Sino-US trade negotiations will be held as scheduled next week. At present, the progress of the negotiations is still satisfactory. It is expected that the trade agreement is expected to be completed smoothly. 
 
The European economic risks brought about by Brexit and the Sino-US trade war are expected to be resolved, and investment sentiment is expected to improve. The global stock markets are expected to look better, but it will affect the price of gold and also declined of the yen. If the outlook for the global economy improves, it will help the price of crude oil rise. In the foreign exchange market, the European currency is expected to bottom out. The situation is similar to the recent trend of the pound. If the Sino-US trade negotiations are successful at the end of the month, the Australian dollar, the New Zealand dollar and the Canadian dollar and other commodity currencies are expected to resume their upward trend.
